In response to population growth 
and urgent Community needs of the 
expanding Atlanta Metropolitan Area; 
Oglethorpe announces the opening of 
an Evening Division. Credit courses as 
well as non-credit courses will be of- 
fered and are designed to aid working 
people — teachers, military personnel, 
veterans, housewives, retired Senior

At the recent Faculty-Alumni Din- 
ner, there were seated on my left and 
right, two gentlemen, father and son, 
for whom I hold respect and admira- 
tion. The former. Dr. Philip H. Welt- 
ner, has been to many alumni the sym- 
bol of Oglethorpe. The manner in 
which he has hved, his life is reflected 
in the "Oglethorpe Idea." Making a 
life and making a living have carried 
Philip Weltner through more enlight- 
ening experiences than one can im- 
agine; as educator, lawyer, community 
benefactor, business and financial ad- 
visor and to hundreds of us, a personal 

The latter was Charles L. Weltner, 
United States Congressman and our 
guest speaker for the evening. Needless 
to say, he was warmly received, hav- 
ing been both a student and a faculty 
member of this University. 

Charles does not represent the 
political party of all alumni, but one 
thing is certain; there is in Washing- 
ton a young man who is highly intel- 
ligent, firm in his convictions and de- 
dicated to serve the best interest of 
his state and country. 

Oglethorpe and the Weltners have 
given much to each other. My associa- 
tion with both has been quite gratify- 

Oglethorpe License Plates Available 

Through the efforts and generosity 
of Steve Schmidt, '40 the alumni of 
Oglethorpe will be able to spread the 
name of Oglethorpe throughout the 
entire nation. 

Steve is offering license plates with 
the name of Oglethorpe University 
embossed on them at a cost of SI. 00. 
Steve is requesting that the dollar be 
sent to the Athletic Booster Club. 

"We are hoping to accomplish two 
things with this offering," Steve said, 
"first, spread the name of Oglethorpe 
as far as we can and second, every 
dollar we collect goes to the benefit of 
the athletic department of Oglethorpe. 

Those alumni desiring an Ogle- 
thorpe license plate should address 
their request to: The Alumni Office, 
make check payable to the Booster 
Club and please specify that it is for a 
license plate.

The Flying Petrel 

L. "Pop" Crow 


L. "Pop" Crow, beloved head of the 
Humanics Department of Oglethorpe 
University and resident administrator 
of the American Humanics Founda- 
tion, died Saturday. December 15, 
1962 of a heart atta'ck. He was 65. 

His full name was Leslie Frank, 
but he liked himself simply as L. 
"Pop." Although he had been a mem- 
ber of the Oglethorpe family for only 
seven years, he leaves as legacy a 
large family of students and alumni 
who have been enriched by his un- 
selfish guidance and devotion. 

In a tribute to "Pop," Dr. Donald 
Agnew, President, said "The college 
community pays tribute and expresses 
its lasting appreciation to "Pop" Crow. 
During his seven years of work as 
teacher and administrator, he had 
made a great impact on the college. 
He established and administered the 
program of the Humanics Founda- 
tion for youth leadership training. He 
developed a successful placement pro- 
gram for student employment. He 
developed the Alpha Phi Omega serv- 
ice fraternity. He worked with many 
student groups and organizations. He 
served on faculty committees. He re- 
presented the college in a wide serv- 
ice to the community as advisor to 
social agencies, as a speaker, counselor 
and friend. 

Most of all. iiis contribution should 
be measured by his sincere and tire- 
less interest in individuals. He has 
given counsel and help to hundreds 
of college students. His counsel re- 
lated not only to academic matters, 
but had concern for personal problems 
in all their complex relationships. 
He was deeply concerned witii hu- 
man values. In countless ways and for 
countless individuals he had advanced 
good causes and lias helped in the 
development of good people. His 
memory in this institution will always 
be alive with honor and gratitude." 

"Pop"" was born in Nebraska and 
received his B.A. degree at the Univer- 
sity of Nebraska. He also graduated 
from the National Training .School for 
Scout Executives and Post School, 
Lussac, France. 

He was a member of the American 
Society of University Professors, Geor- 
gia Recreation Society, the American 
Camping Association, the Adult Ed- 
ucation Association, Phi Beta Kappa, 
the Scout Executive Alliance, and 
Nebraska State Teachers Association. 

He was a past district governor of 
Toastmasters International, a member 
of the Veterans of World War 1. Order 
of the Arrow, Alpha Phi Omega. 
American T egion Post 65, B. P O E 
1602 of Decatur, and was founder of 
the Rotary Club of North DeKalb and 

The educator also was a member- 
at-large of the North Fulton District 
BSA, a member of the Oglethorpe 
Estates Social and Civic Club and the 
DeKalb County Advisory Committee 
of the Family Service Society. 

Dr. Phillips Heads 
Florida Junior College 

Dr. Herbert E. Phillips who taught 
and coached athletics in Atlanta high 
schools and at Oglethorpe University 
for many years was recently inaugurat- 
ed as the first president of the Lake 
City Florida Junior College and For- 
est Ranger School. 

His coaching experience at Ogle- 
thorpe University was during the late 
iy40"s and early 1950"s when he was 
known by his intimates as "Swede."" 

One of his Oglethorpe basketball 
teams won a berth in the national 
(NIAA) tournament for small colleges 
in Kansas City. 

Pop Crow Scholarship 
Foundation Seeks Funds 

The Rotary Club of North De- 
Kalb has established the "Pop" 
Crow Scholarship Foundation to as- 
sist uortin students at Oglethorpe 
in completing their education. Pri- 
marily, the fimds will be available 
to those students residing in the 
North DeKalb area, however, this is 
not an absolute rule. 

In paying tribute to this beloved 
member and founder, Rotarians 
point out that "Pop" assisted I 1 5 
needy students to obtain part time 
employment enabling them to fur- 
ther their stLidies at Oglethorpe. 

Any alumni wishing to make a 
contribution to this memorial schol- 
arship fund may do so by mailing a 
check made out to Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity and noting on the check 
that it is for the "Pop"" Crow Schol- 
arship Foundation.

let and modern jazz dance. 

The chorus will present selections 
from "Camelot", "Do Re Me" and 
"No Strings" in conjunction with the 
dance group. 

"Trouble in Tahiti" by Leonard

poetry awards, and an open conversa- 
tion on "The Role of the Writer in Our 
Society" with four participants includ- 
ing Elizabeth Hunt. 

The primary purpose of the Festival 
is to have as many students participate 
in it as possible and from the plans 
being made the venture will prove to 
be one of Oglethorpe's most successful. 

The Festival is open to the public 
and all alumni are especially invited. 

Reminiscing With The 
Wendell Browns 

In the turmoil following the demise 
of the ill-fated medical school in 1944, 
the library, among many other things, 
suffered. Many volumes had been re- 
moved from the shelves to make way 
for medical books and stored in all 
available places — unused dormitory 
rooms, the room under the clock along 
with boxes of rocks and stuffed birds, 
and even in the coal bin. When the 
medical books were removed from the 
shelves, great gaps were left to be fill- 
ed helter-skelter by any available 
hand from the nearest book dump 
in the building. Cataloguing order was 
abandoned, and the speeches of Wil- 
liam Jennings Bryan rubbed shoulders 
with The Origin of Species and West- 
ermacks Marriage with Little Women. 

In September of that year, we start- 
ed a reorganization. Whoever had time 
worked through the shelves, first sep- 
arating the worthy and the unworthy 
into two piles to be checked by the 
rest of us. If a book had no friends it 
was sold to a second hand dealer or 
as scrap paper. Again the shelves were 
half emptied. The same process went 
on in the various rooms where the 
books were stored. One was the scene 
of a great disaster. 

This room was particularly rich in 
worthy books, and after weeks of 
work, they were piled around the walls 
with the unworthy in a heap in the 
center of the floor. The man then in 
charge of maintainance, and other 
things, was told of the division, and he 
was to have the crew cart them to the 
library and to the trash. But he seemed 
to be no friend to any book and told 
the crew to chuck the whole bunch out 
the window and haul them off. This 
was duly done, and many a shelf re- 
mained forlorn. 

But not for long. Soon replacements 
crowded the shelves, and the alcoves, 
and the corners, and any empty rooms, 
and some even had to be kept in the 
coal bin. Every year the problem gets 
worse. More space is somehow found 
for books, but the student body 
grows too, and there is not room 
enough for both. It seems that one or 
the other has to go. Many students are 
cooperating by not going near the 
library and this helps a little, but not 

And so a new library building with 
space for both in many times the 
quantity we have now is imminent. 

Robert S. Walters, Jr. receives certificate 
from NIH Information Training Program 

Bob Walters, '57 
Completes NIH Training 

Bob Walters, '57, graduated from 
the Information Training Program of 
the National Institutes of Health, Pub- 
lic Health Service, Department of 
Health, Education and Welfare. 

The NIH Inforamtion Training Pro- 
gram which is unique in the Federal 
Government, was initiated in 1957 to 
prepare the competent and highly 
skilled people needed to present to the 
public and special audiences meaning- 
ful information on the medical re- 
search conducted and supported by the 
National Institutes of Health. 

At the completion of the training 
program, trainees are eligible for ap- 
pointment to the staffs of the Informa- 
tion Offices of the Institutes and Di- 
visions of NIH. Bob has accepted an 
appointment to the Information Staff 
of the National Institute of Neurolo- 
gical Diseases and Blindness.

Severance, and their two children re- 
side in Rockville, Maryland. 

It will be very elegant with air condi- 
tioning, elevators, processing rooms, 
music rooms, microfilm rooms, and 
individual study desks for students. 
We know we should not, but we will 
miss stumbling about between crowd- 
ed shelves and through coal bins and 
coming on a rare and overlooked 
piece like The Collected Sermons of

ground, Georgia, 1910-12.

The Flying Petrel 


The Petrels are off and flying again 
in what may be the finest start in their 
basketball history. They have won nine 
and lost one. and number among their 
victims such teams as St. Peters, New 
Hampshire and Carson-Newman and 
have claimed their own Invitational 
Tournament title again. 

The quick start came as a surprise 
to some. On the surface this looked 
like a year of learning for the Petrels, 
a year of rebuilding, a year dedicated 
to a tougher schedule. 

The schedule is there, the toughest 
Oglethorpe ever faced. Teams such as 
Murray State, the only club to hold a 
victory over the Petrels, Carson-New- 
man, Georgia Southern, Centenary, 
East Carolina, Belmont Abbey and 
Chattanooga make each game a new 
experience, a new challenge. 

But these Petrels have taken them 
all in stride. They lost to Murray State 
on the road, but they lost in such a 
manner that Coach Garland Pinholster 
called it one of the two finest thrills 
of the year for him. Beating Rhode 
Island was the other top tiirill. 

Five points was the difference. 50- 
45. between Murray and Oglethorpe 
and it could have been just the oppo- 
site with one break or two. 

"The boys gave 1 10 per cent in that 
game," Coach Pinholster said, "and 
a coach can't ask for anymore than 
that. That is something 1 didn"t expect 
of this team. 1 didn't expect to get that 
extra something every game, that in- 
tangible that means so much in the 
game of basketball." But this club, the 
biggest in Coach Pinholster's time, has 
shown that very thing. 

They went to Jersey City to play 
St. Peters, They didn't get there until 
one hour and a half before the game 
and then they couldn't eat or sleep 
before they had to play. But they won, 
69-58, against a team that had pre- 
viously beaten Manhattan in Madison 
Square Garden. 

St. Peters' Bill Kennedy said Ogle- 
thorpe could beat 60 per cent of the 
major colleges in the East. Coach Pin- 
holster said he feared the rugged trip 
would take 10 to 15 points off the 
Petrel performance, but it didn't. 

The Petrels also played host to the 
University of Paris and it was some- 
what of a mismatch as the first team 
hit 82 per cent of its shots, a fantastic 
number even if they were able to shoot 
without being guarded. 

They won tiie Invitational by beat- 
ing Newberry and Valdosta State. This 
wasn't a shock, but it was a shock that 
Georgetown, co-favored with Ogle- 
thorpe, lost both of its games in the 

There is much ahead for the Petrels. 
Ten games do not make a season and 
the rest of those scheduled are any- 
thing but cake walks. 

The Petrels have once again proved 
themselves defensive masters. And this 
year, for the first time, they adopted 
the "talking zone," a defense created 
by a lot of movement and a strong 
voice. Actually, they just yell on de- 
fense and Ray Thomas yells the loud- 
est of all. 

"We've worked on this for five 
years, "Coach Pinholster said, "and 
at long last we have achieved it." 

Thomas is one of the new crop who 
shows great promise. The sophomore 
guard was named Most Valuable in 
the tournament. Other youngsters who 
have seen action include Billy Parker 
and Bill Garrigan. 

The veterans, seniors Bobby Nance, 
Darrell Whitford and Morris Mitchell, 
and junior Bobby Sexton, have been 
impressive in the shooting department, 
so much so that New Hampshire coach 
Bill Olson said it was the best shoot- 
ing team his club had faced on a four- 
game tour of the South. 

The Petrels have been below 50 per 
cent only twice this season. 

And they have handled such things 
as the zone press and the man-to-man 
press with authority since the Murray 
State game. 

Whitford has emerged as an ex- 
cellent ball handler and floor leader, 
Mitchell as a rugged rebounder and 
accurate shooter. Sexton as the best 
rebounder on the team and terrific far- 
out jump shooter, and Nance as the 
man with the soft touch and the good 


The Real Key to Giving 

Much has been written and said 
about why people give. 

"Erom the first gift that was ever 
given, right up to this day, the basic 
and fundamental reason for giving 
has been to fill a need. People give 
of what they have, whether it be large 
or small," 

"I here are many diagnoses of the 
motivations for giving, such as social 
pressure, perpetuating a name, desire 
for publicity, etc. Some of this may be 
present in some gifts, but even in these 
cases the basic motivation is from the 
heart — the desire to do something for 
people. It is a desire to improve the lot 
of their fellow human beings, to al- 
leviate suffering, and to raise up a 
better generation of citizens." 

So, the question arises, why give 
to Oglethorpe Dniversity? 

And certainly another question of 
importance. How can 1 help insure the 
continuance of independent, liberal 
arts education? 

The answer to these questions is the 
same. And perhaps can best be an- 
swered by some quotes from President 

"Generallv speaking, educational 
institutions are so busy repeating the 
patterns that are well established in ac- 
ademic circles that they have been able 
to give little attention to modifying 
these programs and creating significant 
changes in (undergraduate) education." 

"The weakness in our culture that 
jeopardizes our continued strength is 
not so much a lack of skills and know- 
ledge, not so much gross immorality 
(serious as this is), but it is rather an 
indifference on the part of the mass 
of citizens to the problems of human 
beings through a mere acceptance of 
the status quo.'' 

"What we can hope to do, and what 
I believe we are doing within our 
powers, is to provide a curriculum that 
exposes the student to the main issues 
and an environment less prone to pre- 
judice and more intellectually free than 
in most institutions," 

"The effect of this small institution 
on the process of higher education is 
far out of proportion to it's size and 
to it's economic strength. It is impera- 
tive that such constructive vitality be 
preserved and supported during the 
coming years." 

"Support for Oglethorpe is support 
of an indispensably significant institu-
